Let’s be honest, coming up with the perfect bridesmaids gifts is one of the most exciting parts of the wedding planning process! These are your ladies. Your girl gang. Your ride or dies. They deserve the absolute best because there’s no one you’d rather have by your side on your wedding day. So in honor of your incredible bridesmaids, we’ve crafted the ultimate list of thoughtful, unique bridal party gift ideas.
Before we jump into the ideas though, let’s answer a few common questions about bridesmaids gifts.
How much should I spend on bridesmaid gifts?
This is really up to you! You know your wedding budget and you want to stay with that. Another thing to keep in mind? How much did she shell out to be your bridesmaid? If there was an expensive dress, bachelorette party, bridal shower gift, etc, you should keep that in mind. The most important thing is the gift is personal and shows your appreciation for her involvement with your day. Typically we see most brides spend $75-$150 per bridesmaid.
When do you give bridesmaids gifts?
The two most common times to give your gifts are either at the rehearsal dinner or the morning of the wedding when you are all getting ready. It’s up to you which time you choose!
